has been too much information provided by the obama administration. how have officials you have spoken to responded to that charge? theer: is difficult, criticism. i think it is hard to find merit with a lot of this criticism. the state department, since the lockerbie bombing, the pan am bombing in 1988, has been operating under a no double standards rule, meaning that goes tonformation that official american employees and diplomats serving abroad needs to be or has to be shared with the american public. if they have a specifically credible threat that can close an embassy, they are required to share it with the public. meritot really see much in the criticism. i know that some people have been complaining that the amount of specificity and the location identification of the closed embassies may have tipped off or did tipoff potential attackers and may have alerted them to how their communications were intercepted or compromised, but i think that in the interest of safety in, official americans and private americans were traveling, the state department is operating with an abundance of

and make it about that when obama is going to be saying the opposite. republicans want to shut down the government in order to deny health care to poor people. that will be the debate. i'm not saying he is right. >> you can clearly say this is not about poor people. they already get medicaid. it's hosting the rest of us. >> paul: you are already explaining it. [ laughter ] >> i don't see a lot of downside here because either they force some reform. even if it's too much to hope they get the president to stop here, maybe they force some delays on the impression of it. you have government and epa employees will considered nonessential. i don't really see what the downside is. >> paul: can the republicans really hold down in the shutdown showdown if the national parks get shut down and traffic controllers don't show up for this work. i've been through this rodeo before and i don't think i've seen the republicans maintaining a united front which is what you have to do succeed? >> one of the reasons this has been pushed off is because republicans lost this battle a couple times and decid

obama was celebrating his 52nd birthday from camp david. he's just returned. he's been updated regularly on the global terror threat, including at least twice yesterday. once after a meeting of his national security team which included his adviser susan rice, secretary of state john kerry, and chuck hagel, and a number of other top officials. so he has been monitoring this situation quite closely. and i expect those briefings to go on throughout the day. this all comes as we are looking a little bit of new information about what top officials really are focused on right now. according to a senior administration official and top u.s. official who has been briefed on the latest intelligence, we've been talking a lot about the fact that they are bracing for a significant attack. these two officials tell me significant could either mean one attack or simultaneous attacks. we also know that intelligence officials are particularly concerned about the fact that al qaeda in the arabian peninsula has been working to gain the capability to use surgically implanted explosive devices. now,

briefings and meetings that occur today. president obama due back a little bit later on this afternoon. but, alex, one of the reasons that lawmakers are so concerned, you heard them talk about it, the threat is specific, it is credible. u.s. officials telling me they are bracing for what could be a large attack that has been planned. take a listen to what one lawmaker had to say this morning. >> obviously we don't know where the location is. that's part of the problem, but what we have heard is some specifics on on what's intended to be done and some individuals who are making plans such as we saw before 9/11. whether they're going to be suicide vests that are going to be used or whether they're planning on vehicle-borne bombs being carried into an area, we don't know. >> now that was saxby chambliss on "meet the press." other u.s. officials tell us this intelligence is coming from stepped-up chatter and other sources of information, as well, alex and really it's not just specific to u.s. interests. it's really a target against the wider western world, so we know that france,

obama administration insists it has to be secret. both members of congress and others have been simply requesting to read that and intelligence committee who is led by mike rogers and dutch ruppersberger who receives all things from the industry and have refused to allow them access. that's extraordinary to have a court opinion ruling that the government violated the constitution and the law and not only can't we read it, but our representatives in congress. >> edward snowden, do you think he'd ever accept a deal to come back to the united states? >> i think the concern is whistle-blowers in the united states have become the number one enemy of the united states government, which is incredibly disturbing. mcclatchey is reporting great things about how the obama administration, how they equate it with treason and all kinds of program. "the new york times" has, as well, so unless that culture which investigative journalists in the united states have been warning about for several years changes fundamentally, he doesn't believe he can get a fair trial. whistle-blowers in the united

and barack obama that proposed in congress a flexible work environment. they having asked for changes in job shifts and to tell commute or share a job. this came from other countries like great britain and ireland and new zealand where this policy has been an excellent one. it adds a penny to the expense of an employer if the employer is unable to make clients services or other good faith services they're able to deny the requests. it would be enforced and it will apply to all caregivers. but based on feedback we've expanded this measure to care of of not only their children but take care of a spouse or domestic care imperative. their taking care of of their parents like many elder adults. when we centered. some of this limits the employees who are laerg than 20 employees and for employees that have worked at least 8 human resources a week. and i appreciate that with those all the times the business community no longer opposed those measures. i'm recommending we move it forward. when we have discussions for working families we had two goals around this legislation. to make sure we wer
